LUXURY care home developer Hamberley has unveiled the latest of a group of ten new state of the art homes which it is building for Gracewell Healthcare.
The £10 million care home in Newbury, which was completed earlier this month, marks the next stage in the rapid roll out of new buildings for the award-winning developer.
The team behind Hamberley founded Gracewell Healthcare in 2011 and these new buildings are the first turnkey developments that Hamberley has built exclusively for the provider since it was sold to Sunrise Senior Living and US health care real estate firm Welltower in August 2014, for £153 million.
The new care home in Newbury, on the site of a former guest house, will provide 66 en-suite premium rooms designed to create an exceptional care environment at the heart of the Newbury community.
This home will be swiftly followed by new openings in Adderbury, Bath, Bournville, Lane End, Little Bookham, Sutton, Sutton Coldfield and Woking.
Hamberley is now in talks with extracare operators, major social care providers and healthcare providers to provide turnkey developments – from land acquisition and planning to build and full luxury fit out.
Hamberley Director Tim Street said the design of the Newbury home was proof the business was always innovating.
He said: “Newbury is one of our most ambitious projects to date with a construction and fit out to the very highest standard.
“With this project complete we are now looking forward to delivering the remainder we have in the pipeline for Gracewell and working with other leading providers and real estate investors to build the highest quality healthcare facilities.”
The new Newbury home will combine boutique hotel interior design with leading-edge dementia and innovative specialist care facilities and services.
Just like boutique hotels, which have become very popular in recent years, the home will be defined by its style, warmth, homely experience and intimacy.
Amongst many innovative features the new home will include a luxurious hair and beauty spa, a nail bar, a chic cafe, a library and will have WiFi access throughout the home.
